First Aid Kit "America" Video

  • Swedish sister duo covers Simon & Garfunkel hit

  • Tags:

     Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit put themselves on the indie music map with covers of bands like Fleet Foxes and R.E.M. Their latest cover comes in the form of Simon & Garfunkel's "America," a staple of their live show. In a statement, the Söderberg sisters explained the appeal of the song: “The structure of the song and the melody just make for an epic journey. The lyrics are like a poem, without a single rhyme. It contains some of our favorite lines, like, ‘Toss me a cigarette I think there’s one in my raincoat.’”

    Together with director Simon Gozzi, the two-piece put together this grainy video of their American tour to go with the song. Watch above.
